You know you're a runner when...... (I never get tired of these!!!!)

You know you're a runner when...

  • -you wear your running watch even when you're not running. ("It matches, right?") Luckily, my Garmin is far too large!
  • -you've had your running shoes for three months and you know it's already time to replace them. Doesn't everybody?
  • -you spend more time researching running routes than local restaurants when traveling to a new city. So?
  • -you know where exactly one mile from your front door is (in any direction). LOL... so true.
  • -you know how to correctly spell and pronounce plantar fasciitis. I am painfully aware!!!
  • -you own more pairs of running socks than dress socks. Who needs dress socks anyway... a nice pair of black Injinjis can do the trick!!
  • -when you hear PR, you automatically think "personal record", not "public relations". Hee hee
  • -you pack more running clothes than bathing suits when going on a beach vacation. I pack far too much of everything!!!
  • -you have running clothes and an extra pair of running shoes in your car, "just in case." If you don't, you'll be in a situation where you'll say "Geez, I can squeeze in a run... if only I had some running gear in my car".
  • -your holiday wish list can be fulfilled at any running or sporting goods store. You betcha!!! ( I also include Kate Spade and Tiffany & Co.)
  • -one of the first things people ask you "how far is this marathon?" All the time... Followed by "I hope you win!".
  • -you have several drawers dedicated to running shirts. I hang my long and short sleeve shirts... only my tanks are folded in a drawer(s).
  • -you get excited when the new Runner's World comes in the mail. Nope. It's Trailrunner that gets me giddy!
  • -your Facebook or Twitter updates frequently involve running. YES!
  • -your running partners know more about your bodily function than your significant other. LOL!!!

  • -you have more running clothes than regular clothes in your laundry pile. Especially in the winter!!!

    -you go into Starbucks more often to use the bathroom than to actually buy coffee. It's actually Tim Hortons!

    -you no longer hate port-a-johns. In fact, there have been times when you've been very happy to see one. I totally disagree.... .... well... err... maybe once.
    Hope you enjoyed... hopefully there is one you haven't read before.. a hundred times!!!!

    Gotta run.
